Article about free agency spending supports Packers model

I love analyzing statistics. I like it more when someone breaks it down for me. Here is a great article talking about the amount teams spend in free agency and how it effects their wins.

"No team has won a Super Bowl in the salary cap era with a QB taking up more than 13% of their cap, and the avg the last 17 years is just 6.7%"

AR is 11.62% of the GBP's CAP.

No not all. You are 'sharing information' that is not specifically about the Packers albeit they are mentioned. All articles are read by all and it's up to the Members to reply or not.



Here is the first paragraph of the article;


Quote
It is March, so that means 2017 NFL Free Agency is around the corner.  The “Legal Tampering Period” starts tomorrow, on March 7th.  This is when teams are allowed to negotiate with “certified agents” of players about to become free agents, the news cycle will be filled with deals in-the-works, rumors of handshake deals and other player-team marriages. Then on March 9th free agents are officially allowed to sign with teams.  You can guarantee the news will be rife with immediate hot takes and articles on “free agency winners”. The vast majority of takes will be extremely superficial.  “Which team improved the most?” and most likely, it will be the team that spent the most to sign the best splash players.  It’s predictable, it’s inevitable, but there is just one problem...


This article probably could have been put in a couple different Forums like maybe NFL Talk or Free Agency but it's just not Current Green Bay Packers Talk.


Here is the Forum description for Green Bay Packers News Talk - Serious and current Green Bay Packer Talk including; Information on current Packers players, Packers next opponent talk including game day information.


In any event a good article and thanks for posting.

Mark Twain once said, "There are lies, damn lies and statistics."

Here's a list of SB winning QB's. Trent Dilfer "led" the Ravens to a win, while Brad Johnson "propelled" the Bucs to a win. Brady, with his self-imposed depressed salary won five. Flacco was on the last year of his rookie contract, and Wilson was still under the rookie cap. That's nine of 17 winners who were making a relative pittance, pushing down the higher salaries of the Mannings, Brees, Rodgers and Roethlisberger. So, what does that stat mean? Whatever your heart desires. However, perhaps tapping into your intellect would give you a different answer.

Tom Brady will account for 8.36% of the Patriots salary cap this season.

Obviously the less you have to pay the quarterback, the more money there is to spend on the rest of the team.  So there's a bit of a double edged sword to having a great quarterback who demands a high salary.
